This is a trick question, right?Quote
The question then to be asked at this point is that if they are not the originators of the flood myth, then who before them was?
You've said many times there is NO evidence of a civilization before Mesopotamia. According to you, before Mesopotamia there were only the cave painters and ivory sculptors dragging their bags of seeds and spears around the middle east leaving their genetic trail for you to trace their migrations. According to you, all myths originate from the Gilgamesh so we can disregard what other countries say. According to you, mankind's intelligence, which would include powers of observation and story telling, sprung up somewhere in the last 40,000 yrs, but construction skills and boat building didn't exist before the ziggurat. According to you there is no evidence for anything other than a basket weaving, seed sowing simpleton in the entire 4-1/2 billion yrs of this planets existence.
So it must have originated with one of those fossils you're always talking about or the ET you graciously allow for, but there is no evidence for anything, according to you. You've shot down everything everyone else has brought up. I honestly don't understand why you would ask the question.
